Song of the Day, March 14: My Silver Lining by First Aid Kit

FirstAidSilverToday’s song is a compelling journey of independence and determination. After seven years and two albums, Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg had made their mark as First Aid Kit. Folky and danceable, the created a distinctive sound with international success. For Stay Gold, they began to explore more personal themes, inspired by their adventures in fame and touring.

My Silver Lining is a powerful track, an enthusiastic unpacking of frustrations. Anchored by the simple demand “Show me my silver lining,” it demands more from life. The sisters are in perfect harmony, making the most of their lovely voices. They own their role in pursuing that silver lining with charm and grace.

Many thanks to my dear friend Jackie for introducing me to this wonderful song.
